This is another case of an animal whose family life is as cuddly as its appearance. Dholes are expert endurance hunters, and they run big game down over a course of days until their meal is exhausted and basically serves itself. Unlike the vast majority of wild dogs, the dholes then give their puppies first dibs on dinner. It's truly a kid-centric species, and they need to be, because the future is sketchy for these scruffy fur-balls. Dholes, native to South Asia, are losing food, land, and predatory supremacy to humans at an alarming rate. Many troubles. Such frowns. So endangered. Wow.
